IF brain tumor rate is higher with high cell phone use, 
I speculate common cause, rather than cause- effect.

Th dozens of brain tumor patients I have known were all unusually active-minded.
They were just the sort of people I would expect to have high rate of cell phone use.

Common cause (very active-minded) rather than cause effect, I presume.

Animal experiments should reassure.
